How to cure STD without going to the doctor

STD (sexually transmitted disease) is an infection that is transmitted from one person to another usually during vaginal, anal, and oral sex. It is very common and lots of people who have it don’t have any symptoms. Without proper medical care STD can lead to serious health problems. But getting tested is no big deal, and most STDs are easy to treat. Antibiotics were developed to fight infections caused by bacteria in humans and animals by either killing the bacteria or making it difficult for the bacteria to grow and multiply.

Antibiotics are our best defense to fighting sexually transmitted infections since there is no proven alternative therapy to treating an STI.  Treatment is testing and antibiotics. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), or sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are infections that are passed from one person to another through sexual contact. The contact in most cases is usually vaginal, oral, or through anal sex. But sometimes they can spread through other intimate physical contact and this is because some STD, like herpes and HPV, are spread by skin-to-skin contact.

The most effective complementary treatments of STIs that is, those that go along with standard medical treatment involves prevention and patient counseling like Monogamy, use of latex condoms, avoiding risky sexual activities and medication compliance are some other strategies. Others employ vitamins such as A and C, zinc and carotenoids that increase immunity as an aid to prevention of STD. There are more than 20 types of STDs, including; Chlamydia, Genital herpes, Gonorrhea, HIV/AIDS, HPV, Pubic lice, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis.

Causes of STDs

STDs can be caused primarily by bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

Who is affected by Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD)

Most STD affect both men and women but in most cases the health problems they cause can be more severe for women than men. If a pregnant woman has an STD, it can cause serious health problems for the baby.

Symptoms of STD

Most STD don’t usually cause symptoms or may only cause mild symptoms. So it is very possible to have an infection and not know it but can still transmit it to others. Some symptoms may include;

  • Unusual discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Sores or warts on the genital area
  • Painful or frequent urination
  • Itching and redness in the genital area
  • Blisters or sores in or around the mouth
  • Abnormal vaginal odor
  • Anal itching, soreness, or bleeding
  • Abdominal pains
  • Fever
  • Unusual or odorous vaginal discharge
  • Unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Pain during sex

Most signs and symptoms may appear a few days after exposure. However, it may take years before you have any noticeable problems, depending on the organism causing the STI.

How STDs are Diagnosed

Some STDs may be diagnosed during a physical exam or through microscopic examination of a sore or fluid swabbed from the vagina, penis, or anus. Blood tests can diagnose other types of STDs

Prevention of STD

Correct usage of latex condoms greatly reduces the risk of getting an STD but does not completely reduce the risk of catching or spreading STD. If you or your partner is allergic to latex, you can use polyurethane condoms. The most reliable way to avoid infection is to not have anal, vaginal, or oral sex. Also they are vaccines to prevent HPV and hepatitis B. There are several ways to avoid or reduce your risk of STDs or STIs and they are;

1. Abstinence: This is most effective way to avoid STIs, to not have (abstain from) sex, stay with one uninfected partner. Another reliable way of avoiding STIs is to stay in a long-term relationship in which both people have sex only with each other and neither partner is infected.

2. Wait and Test: Avoiding vaginal and anal intercourse with new partners until both partners are tested for STIs. Oral sex is less risky, but use a latex condom or dental dam to prevent skin-to-skin contact between the oral and genital mucous membranes.

3. Get Vaccinated: Getting vaccinated early, before sexual exposure is also very effective in preventing certain types of STIs. Vaccines are available to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis A and hepatitis B.

4. Use Condoms and Dental dams consistently and correctly: Use a new latex condom or dental dam for each sex act being oral, vaginal or anal. Never use an oil-based lubricant, such as petroleum jelly, with a latex condom or dental dam. Condoms made from natural membranes are not recommended because they’re not effective at preventing STIs. Also, keep in mind that while latex condoms reduce your risk of exposure to most STIs, they provide less protection for STIs involving exposed genital sores, such as HPV or herpes.

Note: Nonbarrier forms of contraception, such as birth control pills or intrauterine devices (IUDs), don’t protect against STIs.

5. Communication: Before any serious sexual contact, communicate with your partner about practicing safer sex making sure both parties specifically agrees on what activities will and won’t be ok.

Others employ vitamins such as A and C, zinc and carotenoids that increase immunity as an aid to prevention. However, while these are healthy preventive tactics, I’ll say it again: Antibiotics are necessary to treat the infection and possible complications. 

Conclusion

The upshot is that it’s possible for some not all STD to go away by themselves, but it’s also possible for STD to persist for months, years, or the rest of your life. If you could have been exposed to an STD, the best thing to do is get tested not to hope that if you did get something, it’ll just go away.
